celebration time, my book, obnoxious joy
OMG the book is real! Time for a serious post, I guess…
First, some practical info: I'll talk about the book on the 23rd in Eindhoven during the Dutch Design Week (hopefully with a little surprise). Hope to see you there: https://www.facebook.com/events/481202395943565/?event_time_id=491450554918749
If you live in Rotterdam, you'll soon find the book at Varia and Printroom or you can directly ask me. Otherwise you can get it online here: https://www.onomatopee.net/product/entreprecariat/
I'd like to thank Freek and Josh from Onomatopee, who enthusiastically believed in this project. Geert Lovink and Raffaele Alberto Ventura for enriching the book with their sharp contributions. Federico Antonini and Alessio D'Ellena for the beautiful "managerial pulp" design. Francesco D'Abbraccio and Andrea Facchetti of Krisis, who made this happen in the very first place (l'edizione italiana è ancora disponibile BTW). There are many more people I'm grateful to, check page 6 to find out ;)
Hey! On Monday, I'll be in Coventry with Cristina Garriga. We'll discuss experimental #publishing as part of a free event from the Post-Publishing programme of the Centre for Postdigital Cultures from #Coventry uni.
Come say hi :)
Beautiful designs of cassette tapes. Very inspirational.
And now some info about sending SYSEX which is needed for some compos.
Revealed: Google made large contributions to climate change deniers
Recently discovered Munt, an emulator for MT32 family of pre-GM Roland MIDI synths. Seems to be used a lot for emulating the emblematic synth while playing DOS games, but works great as standalone player.
Currently enjoying CALYP32.MID, a MT-32 adaptation of Jean Michel Jarre's "Calypso 1", while doing soul crushing paperwork :)
Started to take some notes here:
Will update post if new stuff is added.
After like 2 years I found the time and energy to add some new (old, actually) works to P-DPA: http://p-dpa.net/
Check them out! I added them because I was invited to give a lecture about the archive.
Moral of the story: invite me to talk about the archive so that I can reach the goal of 100 works.
The Open Book Project
"The Open Book aims to be a simple device that anyone with a soldering iron can build for themselves. The Open Book should be comprehensible: the reader should be able to look at it and understand, at least in broad strokes, how it works. It should be extensible, so that a reader with different needs can write code and add accessories that make the book work for them. It should be global, supporting readers of books in all the languages of the world. Most of all, it should be open, so that anyone can take this design as a starting point and use it to build a better book."
